Mechanical Engineering is one of the most diverse engineering disciplines. It deals with the design and manufacture of everything from small individual parts and devices like the inkjet nozzle, to large systems like spaceships. The role of a mechanical engineer is to bring ideas from concept to physical reality. It requires specialized engineering knowledge combined with creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and analytical skills.

This course equips graduates with the specialized knowledge and practical experience necessary to manage complete mechanical engineering processes, from product / project design to production and commissioning. The course features extensive hands-on workshops and includes challenging projects during Years 3 and 4.

Special features

  • 50% of class time on practical exercises in laboratories and workshops.

  • Students in this course have been very successful in Engineers Ireland’s Innovative Student of the Year award, winning three times and runner-up once in the last 6 years.

  • Well balanced mix of theoretical and practical elements with an extensive design project in year 4.

  • The course incorporates a strong emphasis in the vital area of ​​sustainable energy.

  • Use of industry standard design tools ANSYS and SOLIDWORKS.

Career prospects

Mechanical engineers work in a wide range of industries including: automotive; aerospace; biotechnology; computers and electronics; micro electromechanical systems; energy conversion; environmental control; automation and manufacturing. Graduates will have a variety of career options open to them, such as working in industry, government, consulting, or research centers.
